Tokyo must reform, boost role of women to attract investment, Gov. Koike says

Tokyo Gov. Yuriko Koike speaks at the "Japan Summit: Future Works" conference in Tokyo on Oct. 21.

TOKYO -- The nation's capital has to work harder to attract foreign investment, Tokyo Gov. Yuriko Koike said here at the Japan Summit: Future Works event on Friday.

Foreign direct investment into Japan is no higher than into the landlocked nation of Burundi, she said at the event organised by The Economist magazine. It is too difficult to start a business in Tokyo, and the city lacks services for foreigners such as international schools, she said.
